Summary: The biggest turn-off of this game for me is the inability to choose your gender. I was disappointed, as most of the games allow for you to choose and it makes it more fun to play over and over again. Also, some of the noises characters make when you talk to them are VERY annoying/scary (examples are Martha, Tim, Dan). Other than these two grievances, the game to me is very fun and playable.
Summary: I absolutely LOVE this game. I've played games for the Wii, playstation and DS, and this is one of the best ones yet. You can do, pretty much anything! After a while, though, it does get boring, but the challenge of having a kid, raising animals and having a farm is priceless!
Summary: I would have given this title 5 stars if not for the fact that in the Wii version you can't play as a girl. I assume this was done in order to bypass a game-ending glitch I've heard about from the GC version, but I would still really like to play as a girl! That aside, the game is really fun! I've gotten hours and hours of entertainment from it.
Excerpt: "Harvest Moon Harvest Moon: Magical Melody is a release from the popular game series Harvest Moon. It was originally released for the GameCube but was then rereleased two years later for the Nintendo Wii, which is the version I am reviewing here.

Pros: Easy to make money, name your character and pets, becomes very addictive
Cons: Takes a while to get a hang of the controls, map function is useless, music is a bit repetitive
Summary: I have never before in my life played a "Harvest Moon" game and so had no clue what to expect. I was sitting on my laptop one day, a little bored, browsing amazon for things to buy (to make me less bored), when I happened by "Harvest Moon: Magical Melody". It's a game that, if you don't know what you're doing, like I didn't, is overwhelming, where the game-play rewards always seem to be just a little out of reach.
Excerpt: "This game appealled to me for the outset as it was a role-play type game where you become a character and live their life. I've always been a fan of games like this eg the sims and thought that this, coupled with the easy control given by the Wii remotes, would be a great match. In the game itself, you become the lead character and have to make your living. You do this by foraging, fishing and growing crops on your farm. You then sell your produce ...
